Unframed Dimensions 27.5" x 27.5" x 1" (inches)


A large, semi abstract, contemporary landscape painting in acrylic medium on professional, square, gesso primed canvas. I have used subtle colour tones of turquoise, pink, grey, burnt umber and  green to describe the land, rock and reflection upon wet sand. It has been painted in a slightly impressionistic way which is full of expression and painterly technique throughout. Overall, neutral with soft colour tones and strong contrasting features. This artwork has great depth giving a sense of open  space and great perspective.


It has been inspired by my time spent at UK coastal locations, primarily the Cornish coastline, studying texture, contour, colour and nuances of the land amongst the elements of the changeable British weather.


It has been painted in a semi abstract style creating atmosphere and presence. The artwork is deep in tone with a rustic but modern quality. The cloudy sky reflects onto the rocky wet sand where I have used an expressionist form of painterly lines and detail. I find that using acrylic paint with different mediums gives me the effects I need to convey the aspects of uneven, coarse, natural beauty for a seascape such as this and am able to work with impact and immediacy to convey a sense of presence.


So in my interpretation of painting a subject, I try to maintain the essence of what first inspired me to paint it. For me, what is fundamental in paintings are light, subtlety of colour, harmony, depth and drama, while still staying true to the subject. In my finished work, I hope that I have conveyed to the viewer a sense of mood which was present at the time of painting it.


It has been left unframed for you to decide the frame to reflect your interior, whether home or your work space. It will suit either the contemporary frame or the more traditional choice.
